I am so thrilled! I was introduced to two fantastic sites that sell items to customize your Ikea furniture. I am so in love! I am going to redo everything I have for almost nothing! The first site is called Overlays by Danika and Cheryle. They have created the most beautiful, inexpensive and lightweight overlays to go over almost any Ikea furniture and many of your other pieces that need new life. The finished products look extremely high end. Here are some picture from their site. Go check them out for more inspiring ideas.
Courtney also had a fabulous idea to add nail head trim to his Ikea nightstands. I just love the way this looks! So sophisticated and masculine.
The other site is a place that does slipcovers for Ikea sofas at a very low price. It is called Comfort Works.
I will be ordering things from this fantastic company as well!
All of the pictures above were taken from the sites I mentioned.
Use the things you have and make them work for you and your home!
